OK I finished this a few minutes ago had to crop some as scanner is too small to take it all in... the blue under the white daiseys is now as intense at the scanner suggests... comments?

Kathy nice use of color,and drawing skills.
The composition needs some darks to set one flower or area off and draw the eye to it. IMHO you do not have a focal point or center of interest to draw the eye to.
By placing some darks in the painting you will draw one of the flowers out of the group to call out"LOOK at ME" and I believe improve the over all painting.

Agree with Rich....but still a nice one Kathy....:)

The colors are so vibrant and the painting is so well done.

IMO,however, it is cut right through the middle and it makes 2 paintings, split by the vertical lines of the pussy willow and the forsythia-looking yellow flower spray.

I agree with Rich.

Very nice painting. I agree with previous comments about focal point. You can some flowers in the middle, or as suggested make two painting.

Kathy, I really love the light and airy feeling of this painting. What a beautiful garden! What a fantastic job!

I thank you Rich and taghera I went for a central focal point of red flowers but not sure now i achieved it. on the last semi-WIP someone suggested a golden triangle I did give some thot to that.
Artmom interesting thought to split it down the middle,
Aselka thank you I will print it out and play with it.
hopefulbucky thank you very much for your encouragement... spring is very pretty this year and I am painting it where ever I see it....by the way nice rosebud tinyhead:)
